I upgraded from Ivy Bridge i5-3570k vs i5-10600k Comet Lake

Recommended Posts

TLDR: The red numbers in the jpg are the bottom line percentage performance gains.

 

I wanted FS2020 but had a good inkling it would most likely be a bit of a mess on release so I waited for feedback before purchasing.

IMO sure enough, seeing how 1/2 done FS2020 currently is, and how it will be for a while, I have not yet purchased it and won't until the study sim tubeliners are sorted.

So instead, seeing as though I have hundreds of $$$ invested in FSX, I decided it was finally time for me to upgrade and see if I can stretch FSX's legs a bit more.

The end result is the below accurate as possible personal benchmarks I have done before and after an upgrade of cpu, motherboard and memory.

Hopefully this is helpful for other FSX owners.

  • I've tried to keep it apples to apples as possible.
  • The graphs I now see are upside down, oh well, deal with it. 🙂
  • Both cpu setups were run on reasonable fresh win10 installs.
  • Used 4 distinctly varied scenery/location save points.
  • Recorded 35 seconds of stabilized info with MSI Afterburner.
  • This is bare bones stock FSX retail with Acceleration. (nice to see the MS activation servers are back online, used to have to phone in the code)

I had an 15-3570K. That thing ran great. I had it OC'd the entire time. I'm getting old so I forget exactly what I had it running at. It was in the ballpark of 4.2 like yours. I thought it was going to give up the ghost early in it's life because I ran it hot (up to the lower-mid 80s°C it's entire life) and there wasn't very good cooling in that system but it just kept going and going until it retired when the 8600K got here. I also ran that one hot for close to 3 years. I'm trying to go a little easier on the 10850K as they are borderline burning up right out of the box. So far, so good.

Excellent comparison.  FSX is very much CPU bound.
